Unreliability and confusion do not have to be a part of your dating-over-50 experience, dating coach Bobbi Palmer told Huff/Post50."A lot of people who are dating in their 50s probably haven't dated since they were [in their 20s] -- they're paralyzed, they still have the old vision of themselves and the old vision of the boys they were dating," Palmer said.In fact, Stephanie was even more beautiful than her older sister, and I just had to pursue.
To further complicate matters, have you looked at some of these women?
We hung out after school together almost every single day. Perhaps it starts off in the 1st grade when we’re running around yelling with blue slurpee stains on our Sesame Street t-shirts.
She’d come watch my tennis matches and I’d take her to Mc Donald’s afterward for some hot apple pie and Mc Lovin. Or perhaps the perception starts in the 7th grade where we start snapping one too many bras.
Probably few hetero males don't appreciate an eyeful of a good-looking 20-year-old woman, but at what approximate age, if any, do women stop being secret-ogle worthy?
If it matters, here's my situation: I'm 54 and divorced 2 years after 32 years of marriage to a man with major mental health issues.
I know there's a lot that goes into the mix--personality, zest for living, confidence, etc., and maybe I'm warped by my few experiences. I've dated women 10 years younger (when I was 35) and 10 years older (when I was 40). Personality, positivism, humor, attitude, and enthusiasm matter much more after that first 2 minutes. It's a nice place to meet people and get past that first 2 minutes.
